    Environmental Considerations in Potash Mining and Processing Potash mining activities may affect the quality of air, water, and land. The beneficiation of potash ores normally results in large volumes of waste materials including brines, slimes containing clay, and salt tailings. The disposal methods most frequently used include:

    Mining is planned to start from the northwest section of the mine boundary and then migrate to the east. Upon completion of the primary production phase, the injection fluid will be changed from fresh water to brine-saturated in waste salt and the potash will be more selectively dissolved, thus more waste salt will be left underground

    Potash is extracted from buried ancient evaporites by underground or solution mining. This accounts for most of the potassium produced. Another important source is brine from land-locked water bodies, such as the Dead Sea, Salar de Atacama or Great Salt Lake. About 95% of potash produced worldwide is used in agriculture. The rest is found in
